First time: with a business associate for lunch. What we had was unimpressive. Second time: on a Sunday morning with my neighbor, who was craving an omelette and wanting to see the place. Not a breakfast guy (and with that first experience), I agreed to...More

It's extremely expensive when you factor in how much the tab is along with the food quality. It's expensive and all, but it's all flash, zero substance. The menu, prices and attitude of the chef/owner are way over the top. He has a big ego...More

We went in for lunch. There were 3 other tables with 6, 2 and 3 people at each. The waiter seated us and brought us menus. 15 minutes later he brought us water. 10 minutes later he took our order...and said that it might take...More

My wife and I are both French and were expecting French cuisine. Although the menu is in French and the dishes all come from France, the taste wasn't even close to what you can find in France. We started with a salad and you could...More

I have never eaten in an authentic French restaurant before, but my wife has. She is a dual US-French citizen and has never before been able to find supposedly French food that she considered satisfactory. I visited this restaurant for brunch and to pick up...More

I wanted this place to be so great, but it fell flat on it's face. I ordered some apps, they are okay and took forever, around 30 minutes and then my salmon was overcooked, dry and bland. Perhaps French food isn't for me? My friend...More

The hospitality was superb and so were the entrees we ordered. I was so glad they were offering authentic French food and somewhat outside the box by serving beef tongue and frog legs. The beef tongue was as good as was my Mother's! The Paella...More

Many excellent menu choices for dinner. My wife enjoyed the roast duck and I the beef tonque; both were outstanding. The service was superb and especially friendly. We have spent a great many vacations in France and Paris, and love the French cuisine and dining...More

What a fantastic place. The hospitality cannot be beat nor their food. For those that have traveled to France or are from there, this is the real deal. The owners do the cooking and the entertaining/hosting and have recently added a nice wine list that...More

An interesting anomaly in Ferndale. A restaurant that really does try to travel outside the Thank God It's Franchise cookie cutter. I've been to this restaurant several times over the last 15 years and haven't had a bad experience. Brunch (good omelettes and crepes, they...More
